and we've seen that over and over again. we saw a case like that in oakland where they were finding guns that were actually coming from rural georgia come to find out there was a person who was going through this straw purchasing, sending the guns to oakland in the rural area and those were being sold and distributed to gang members. by the way, we have bipartisan support in the house for this bill over 100 co-sponsors. it says when you, a straw purchaser goes out there and does that, they're no longer going to be limited to a fine, almost like a, you know, you get -- you're speeding at 65 in a 55-mile zone. no more of that. the penalty is going to be increased substantially. and right now, there is no federal law dedicated to gun trafficking. that is that when that straw purchaser buys that gun and then turns it over to either somebody who they know should not have a gun or forbidden for having a gun or cartels in mexico or what have you, now there will be a law against not only the strawberry purchaser but the person who is receiving the gun and any kingpins that might be involved
